Getting Their Share In an address made at the banquet given for Admiral Hugh Rodman and the officers of the Paclflo Fleet at tiie Del Monte Hotel In Mouterey, Governor Stevens of California re marked, “At laat California and the Pacific Coast States have reoeivedthe adequate protection they have need ed for yean and we extend a hearty welcome to Admiral Rodman and Ills fleet.” The welcome of the newly organ ized Pacific Fleet has indeed been hearty and sincere. West Coast hospitality has more than shown its appreciation, and it is with a spirit of pride and willingness that the fleet assumes it's new duty. A feel ing of safety exists throughout Cali fornia which never existed before and the fear of the Oriental menace has completely subsided. The East lias for years failed to realise this fear, but thanks to the World War. a more equal disposition has been made of our naval forces. Instead of a small fleet of small ships as in form er years, the Pacific Fleet con sists of the three largest ships In the Navy, namely, the New Mexico, Mississippi and Idaho, four other large super dread naughts, and a large number of pre-dreadnaughts, cruisers and destroyers. It Is hoped, that as the new build ing program progresses, the Pacific Fleet will receive it's share of the newer ships. An Auto Accident R. L. Nichols came very near to meeting with a serious auto aeddeut *iii upper Coal creek, last Monday. He had taken a Mr. and Mrs. Wil son up there to look at some land; an axle of his Ford broke, and before be could get control of the car it ran away. He waa trying to stop the oar by turning It up the hill side a wheel came off; the car turned over with Mr. Nichols under it. He re ceived a pealed face and a broken shoulder. Just before the upset Mr. and Mrs. Wilson jumped, and escaped injury. It was fortunate that they were right at hand to go to Mr. Nlchols* aid; had they not been, it is altogether probable that he would have been killed, as he could not have gotten from under the car without assis tance. The Reel Democracy Social disorganization is not n product of radical theory. In Europe at tho present moment it is the out come, Inevitable in one form or an other, of tyranny giving way to bankruptcy, hunger. Idleness and distrust No use of force can cure past distresses, and only present jus tice and thrift can remove resentful wretchedness. The real sources of trouble lie fsr deeper than any clash of theory. Social unrest, labor struggles ami the various disturbances of the day do not originate in doctrines, fallacious or otherwise. The great war ha* stirred society to its depths, so that the best and worst rise to the sur face. Hut its most direct result has been to destroy the stability of mon ey valuea, savings and earnings alike are submerged in uncertainty. The high cost of living produced world necessity, world waste and currency inflation, all this aggragavated by lavish expenditure and unexampled taxation, tends to drive the masses to the wall. The partial relief of a minority of workers thru successful strikes only lays heavier burdens on the others. There are a few in every nation who enjoy what is called “war prosperity” but there is no real pros ity in war. War drains the heart’s blood of all nations, financially as well as biologically. For this there is no remedy, only partial palliation, until thrift aud cooperation can re store normal life. And so social theory, bad or good, can greatly change conditions. What the world has spent, it must somehow make good. Two tilings moreover, must be remembered. No enterprise can persist if Its outlay exceeds the value of Its output, nor yet if it fails to give the laborer an adequate living wage.—Dr. David Starr Jordan in the Sunset. A careful court of our Republican exchanges shows that of those which roasted Mr. McAdoo hardest when he was secretary of tho treasury, ninety-eight per cent are now engag ed In roasting him because he quit the administration to enter private business. Whereas they used to hold that he was clutteriug up the decks of the ship of state they now charge him with deserting the nation in its tutor of need. It Is difficult indeed to suit some people, particularly those who change their minds on re ceiving the week's editorials from the copy mill at national headquarters.— Greeley News A Shooting Accident Herbert C. Snyder, who was acci dently shot at tho Keystone ranch, on the previous Sunday, died at Meeker last Sunday, as a result of his injuries. From the meager information at hand it appears a boy named Morris and the deceased,were together in a room; the former was cleaning his rifle, which, in some uuexplainable way went off, the bullet hitting Sny der in the side. The injured man was rushed to Meeker, and medical and surgical aid administered, but to no avail. Deceased was a newcomer in these parts, having recently purchased a ranch at Kangely. He was a native «f Canada; over fifty years of age, and married. Relatives came in at once, and Un tertaker Oourley prepared the re mains for shipment to Sterling, Colo. Those who knew him, say that he was a worthy citizen. The accident was a deplorable one. Another Boy Home Albert LaKamp returned to Meek er, Tuesday, *after fourteen months over seas service. Albert was In the third division and welit three tho battles of Chateau-Thierry,Argonne.the Meuse offensive, and the Secoud Hattie of the Marne. Albert was with J. I*. Richardsoif, another White river boy, when the latter was badly wounded and help ed carry young Riciiurdsou to first aid station.

The Tale of Mary’s Lamb Mary had a little lamb Hut Mary needed kale So Mary sold her little pet —And thereby hangs a tale. For Mary sold at 14 cents; The rural livestock trader Who bought it, sold at. Hi cents —Two cents more than lie paid ’er. The man wiio bought it shipped the lamb Hut clipped tho wool all off it. And then he added on the freight And a cent a pound fur profit. At last a packer bought tiie lamb And killed poor Mary’s pet; He sold t lie meat at 24; The by-product* were net,. Commission men and jobbers all; Were called to gather 'round; There wasn't one hut added on At least a cent a pound. At last tiie lamb went homo again And there, all cold and stark it Hung up in tiie butcher simp In Mary's homo town market. The butcher figured overhead, His rent, investment, time. And, to make his profit sure, He added on a dime. Then one day Mary told her pa To bring a leg of lamb, And father, when lie bought it, said Things like O Hell aud Datnm. About the living cost her pa And Mary loudly cry;* And neither olio can understand Why everything's so high. After reading The Herald send it to your friends in the East.
